About the Author

As a little girl I loved to create fantasy worlds and then give all my friends roles to play. Of course, I was always the heroine! Books have always been an escape for me and brought me so much pleasure, but it didn't occur to me that I could possibly be a writer for a living until I was in a career that was not my passion. One day, I decided I wanted to craft stories like the ones I loved, and with a great leap of faith I quit my day job and decided to try to make my dream come true. I discovered my passion, and I have never looked back. I feel incredibly blessed and fortunate that I have been able to make a career out of sharing the stories that are in my head! I write Scottish Medieval Romance, Regency Romance, and I have even written a Paranormal Romance book. And because I have the best readers in the world, I have hit the USA Today bestseller list several times.

I loved the first book in this series and couldn't wait to get into Bridget and Lachlan's story. The first half did not dissapoint! I liked the storyline of forbidden love, the tension and the interaction of the hero and heroine. Where this story lost me was when Colin Campbell became part of the storyline. There were enough obstacles to overcome without adding his part to the tale. What happens next TOTALLY turned me off as a reader. I skimmed through the rest of the book.

This was such a wonderful story. Bridgett is such a strong and courageous person and Lackland has love her since she was a teen. The story has all sorts of intrigue with family against each other and against the king. I can't really explain it properly but this was another fantastic story in this series.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this second book in the series as captivating as the first. That is high praise for a harsh critic such as I. Now on to the third book.

Continuing the McLeod family saga, book 2, the McLeod brothers are fiercely loyal to each other and their clan. Lachlan's story will test this bond of strength between brothers. This book is a powerful love story of a most unusual lady who wants to be seen as equal to the clans warriors. She needs a warrior husband who will let her fight by his side, be his equal and partner in life. This book is beautifully written and brings to life the powerful McLeod and MacLean clans as they vow to protect their king and restore his kingdom. A beautiful love story you won't want to miss. (I purchased this book in another format)

Slowly, she turned her head toward him and their gazes locked. “Because he risked his life for me and sustained a terrible injury in doing so. But Marion made me see how wrong that reason was. Even greedy. I was marrying him to ease the guilt his selfless act caused me. But I ken I dunnae love him, and I dunnae believe I would ever love him the way he deserves to be loved—with all of a woman’s heart. It’s nae anything he’s done.” How would you feel if you had to marry someone against your will? What about someone who you feel that you owe your life to? Johnstone really delves into the emotional turmoil of a heart that is torn between duty and love. This tale is of a woman who has fallen in love with a man, but has been claimed by another—one who has saved her life. Wicked Highland Wishes holds depth, historical adventure, emotional prevalence and timeless romance. Johnstone provides a riveting and fascinating story that will captivate readers who enjoy this genre. Bridgette McLean is a fascinating, independent woman who longs to do things like the men. Her biggest desire is to go on a hunt with her brother and his men. Upon denial, she decides to teach her brother that she can take down the wild boar like any other man. When she stumbles upon the enemy, Lachlan MacLeod comes to her rescue…the man that Bridgette can’t get out of her head and heart after one kiss. Throughout the coming months, Lachlan’s brother makes his claim on Bridgette. Lachlan and Graham have been on odds since youth, but this final claim may break Lachlan for good. He feels an undeniable pull towards Bridgette, but an equally vast emotional determination to support his brother out of protection and honor. What is to be done when it becomes inevitable that they can’t stay away from one another, even though they have been pledged to others? Johnstone knows her characters well, to the point where this world is difficult to escape from. It is clear that she has a profound knowledge of history and a lot of research went into her story. This author does a superb job with character development and originality. The pace is very fluid and quick, but not so quick as to hinder understanding or perception. As this story progresses, it becomes more of a struggle for Lachlan and Bridgette, almost to the brink of eternal suffering. If you are a reader of historical romance, this may be an exciting read for you…but please know that this is the second installment. It can be read as a standalone, but does flow more consistently after the first installment has been read.

Wicked Highland Wishes (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts Book 2) by Julie Johnstone is a fantastic Medieval/Scottish Romance. While, Book 2 it can be read as a stand alone, I would suggest reading Book 1 "When a Laird Loves a Lady", as well. WOW Highlanders! I loved Book 1, but "Wicked Highland Wishes", was even better, if possible. I was enthralled and an awe from the first page to the last. This story will stay with you long, after the last page. Fast paced, heart-pounding, emotionally charged and absolutely mesmerizing. The characters will capture and captivate the reader with their fierce determination and their willingness to move forward, even after the horrific circumstances of their lives. The storyline is unique, intriguing and utterly fascinating. A very impressive, and very compelling story!! "Wicked Highland Wishes" is not all happy endings, sunshine and happiness but a story of true truimph, especially for the heroine, who suffers much, but manages to survive, and become even stronger. I was impressed how Bridgette, handled her ordeal and her determination to overcome what was taken from her, with the help of Lachlan. Filled with passion, jealousy, danger, betrayal, challenges, suspense, intrigue, healing, understanding, family, the power of true love and so much more. Many twists and turns with many surprises. Intense, compelling and powerful! Ms. Johnstone is a masterful and brilliant storyteller! "Wicked Highland Wishes" also offers inspiration for those who may have experienced a dramatic event in their lives, that they didn't think they would be able to survive and learn to overcome! You are not powerless!! *May have some difficult or disturbing scenes for some readers.* Fans of Medevial romance, Scottish Romance, Highlanders, fierce heroines, determined, brawn Highlanders and a mesmerizing story, I feel will adore this powerful story. I absolutely can not say enough about "Wicked Highland Wishes", it is definitely a must read, a keeper and a story to be cherished! I hope you will pick up this amazing tale for yourself, you won't be disappointed! Another hit from Julie Johnstone! ! I received a complimentary copy.

Wicked Highland Wishes by Julie Johnstone Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts Series Book Two Lachlan MacLeod loved the lassies and they loved him. While boar hunting at MacLean Castle, he rescued—unless you ask the lass, who claimed she was doing fine on her own—Bridgette from their enemies. They shared a moment. When his brother said his heart belonged to her—Lachlan did what was best. He backed away. Bridgette MacLean will never forget the man who kissed her to erase the memory of an attack. The same man who never showed interest in her again. The same man whose brother she was going to marry because he was injured while saving her. The same man who would always hold her heart. What an exciting page turner. King David has been rescued and is ready to find out who his enemies were—and who stayed true. He also used his power to choose what woman he would gift those who helped him. It's a time of turmoil for these Scottish clans and a tough time to fall in love. Great series that starts with; When a Laird Loves a Lady. **Sexual content

I loved this book! I do not normally read the Scottish Medieval type novels, but I have loved this series from Julie Johnstone! I really loved this second book and you find that you are transported back in time. The authenticity is amazing! I actually cried and felt extremely anger too with the characters! You will love the characters! READ THE SERIES~

This book had me laughing and crying. There are some dark places, but love shines its light to warm your heart. I loved Bridgette's strength from the beginning. I held my breath at times when she did as she pleased. Lachlan was a very caring man with a big heart. The history behind the story was intriguing. I highly recommend this story, part of a series but does standalone. I received an ARC of this book. I am voluntarily reviewing this.

It's rare in a movie when they make a sequel and it's actually better than the first movie. The same holds true with books. They might be very good stories but sometimes that first book is the one that keeps you coming back to read it time and again. For me, this book is that rare sequel, like Empire Strikes Back, that will keep you coming back to it because it's JUST THAT GOOD. Love, love, LOVE Lachlan! He is what I love most about a hero. He's loyal, fair, fierce, honorable, funny, sexy, loves his family and doing what's best for them is a code he lives by regardless if it means sacrificing his own happiness for King, Country and Clan and most importantly, he's human. He's not perfect, he makes mistakes and owns up to them and when faced with losing his love to another, he's not afraid to admit he's not strong enough to live without her but will if he must. Bridgette is a marvelously strong heroine and only she will do for Lachlan. But she's also willing to sacrifice her happiness in order to please the ones she cares about most despite the fact that she wants the one man she doesn't think she will ever have. She's feisty, brave, smart and intelligent. She's not weak nor a simpering miss. There is political intrigue and a rebellious plot to be discovered, a prophecy to be fulfilled and a love like no other to be explored if it's meant to be. I love Ms. Johnstone's books. She writes what I love to read but she raised the bar a little higher, IMO, with this one. I can NOT wait to read more from this series. I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Bridgette MacLean’s heart belongs to one man and has for many years but guilt has her compelled to face a life married to another man. When a seer foretells of a great divide between these two men, a divide that leads to the death of one the other bent on vengeance Bridgette seeks to prevent this from happening. What she doesn’t foresee is the threat to her life and the very love she’s determined to protect and what it will cost her. Lachlan MacLeod is a warrior of honor; a warrior whose motto is always “family first”. A motto that has him placing his brother’s wants (a brother who harbors great resentment towards Lachlan) before his own and letting him pursue the one woman Lachlan cannot forget. Amidst his duty to the King, an unwanted fiancée, and a threat to his family’s land Lachlan realizes this is a love he’s not willing to give up on. Which is a good thing as he will need that belief in love and patience to overcome harrowing events. My, oh my, oh my!! Julie Johnstone has written a riveting tale of love, the desire to do what’s right and throws in some curve balls I didn’t see coming all to great effect. Bridgette is a strong heroine who goes through ordeals that would truly break a lesser woman. I bawled at what she goes through then bawled some more as she comes out even stronger. And Lachlan? I wasn’t prepared to fall hopelessly in love with this hero! His adoration, love and patience is what true heroes are made of. This is one of those rare stories that will sit with you long after you have read it. Outstanding job, Ms. Johnstone!! (Side note: this story contains parts that are not a favorite trope but in this – it works and makes the love between the hero and heroine that much sweeter.) I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

I continue to be enthralled with Ms. Johnstone’s medieval romances. This one is about another of the MacLeod brothers, Lachlan, who is involved in a private feud with his brother Graham, who has declared he will marry Bridgette MacLean only because he seeks to win her from his brother Lachlan’s regard due to his jealousy. There are a couple of other intrigues going on in this Highland romance, including a long lost sister and a vengeful man who wishes to marry Bridgette as well as Graham and Lachlan, and a nefarious plan to steal the Faery Flag from the MacLeod Clan whose faith in the flag is thought to be the reason for their winning so many battles. But Bridgette’s and Lachlan’s love is so strong that they survive these many battles despite all of the stumbling blocks put in their way. An exciting, action-filled love story not to be missed!
